A little bit of color from Illinois

After finding the round barn(s) I posted yesterday, we just took backroads to get back to Indiana. For the most part, Illinois is just so flat. I always wonder just how far I am actually seeing. Well, we were taking this one road, and it turned into rolling hills. And we found this state park/wildlife area. For the life of me I cannot remember the name. It really wasn't much of anything, except there were a couple places to pull off the road....I thought the sumac in the top photo was just so lovely...but it was midday so the lighting just about ruined all the pictures I took. So I will definitely be on the lookout for it in better lighting. I don't know what the plant/flower is in the bottom two but I think it quite lovely. These were taken in the shade so are better photos.
